    Are you using Large fonts in Windows?

    If so, turn them off.

    Otherwise, if you go to the C:\Program Files\MediaCar\SKINS folder, and into the sub-folder for the skin you're using, use Notepad to open the .skin files for the specific sections, and you can change the font size there

    this Option is NORMAL....

    what i can remember i told this during the installation of winXP....

    use big fonts...

    but i donīt know where to change know during normal working with xp

    i tried to change know the skin-files.

    some fonts like datum and others are now smaller...

    but not the list... postet on the pic before. someone knew the exact file and part for this list?

    EDIT: OK, there must be another problem. I choose a very small fontsize... and the list uses this size. however, what size i choose, the font will be cut off...

    Try the advanced settings for your video card. Perhaps you have a larger DPI setting enabled?

    Alternatively go through the accessibility wizard and tell it you're not visually impaired.

    Try Right click on desktop > Properties > Settings tab > Advanced Button > General Tab and the drop down list there should read "Normal size (96 DPI)" for the smaller/normal size fonts.
